The premiere episode of the CW's
The Spectacular Spider-Man on Saturday morning delivered the best household ratings (1.2/3) Kids' WB has seen in the 10 am time slot this TV season. It also represents a 20 percent increase over the same week last year.
The episode's performance with kids 2-11 (hi, Jared and Jacob! Daddy'll be home in an hour!) bested the previous week by 25 percent. And mind you, they haven't even broken out the big guns - Doc Ock and Lizard - yet. (I know this because that's the one thing my 5-year-old Siskel and Ebert's harped on. Elektro just doesn't cut it.)
